Goodwill provides free pick-up of any goods, except for corporate business donations or donations from yard sales. However, the free pick-up service does require an eight item minimum. For corporate donations or remainders of yard sales, one can pay a fee for Priority Donation Pick-up.
The Priority Donation Pick-up comes within 48 hours, and they remove large items from anywhere in one's home. The free home pick-up service needs to be requested online six to eight weeks in advance. Goodwill makes contact within five business days after the request has been submitted to schedule a pick-up date. The free pick-up service doesn't retrieve items from basements, attics or from rooms that are up or down stairs. One can easily request Priority Donation Pick-up or free donation pick-up from the Goodwill website.
Furniture and objects that do not meet Goodwill's standards are sorted thoroughly at the facility. Commonly rejected items include broken furniture, furniture or other items covered in animal hair, extra bulky items like swimming pools and swing sets, large appliances, and used mattresses or pillows, as well as building and plumbing materials, anything pornographic in nature, baby furniture and items that do not meet current safety standards. Moreover, firearms, auto parts and computer software older than 2 years are not accepted.
